Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru – 12 (END)

「それ町」 (Sore Machi)
“That Town”

I have seen many different interpretations of what Heaven could actually be like, but I think Sore Machi’s version is the funniest I’ve ever seen.

Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru – 11

「紺先輩号泣の夏」 (Kon Senpai Goukyuu no Natsu)
“Kon Senpai’s Summer of Tears”

Besides Ahotori and Futabaka cracking jokes off of each other, this week’s episode really ramped up the level of Hotori fanservice. Plus, Moriaki-sensei finally makes his return!

Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru – 10

「穴ツッコミじいさん」 (Ana Tsukkomi Jiisan)
“The Finger-Pointing Geriatric”

I never thought Sore Machi could get weirder. Apparently, I thought wrong. From Aliens to Ghosts this episode dives headfirst into some strange topics. I should have seen this coming – especially since there was a real time traveler last episode.

Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru – 09

「激突!大人買い計画」 (Gekitotsu! Otonanagai Keikaku)
“Clash of the Buyitans!”

Besides the epic proportions of boobs flying around in this week’s episode, Sore Machi somehow manages to intertwine the very concept of time travel in the midst of all the jokes.

Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru – 08

「全自動楽団」 (Senjidou Gakudan)
“Full-auto Orchestra”

I think I’ve created the perfect formula for having a great slice of life. It needs to have a character who everyone LOVES, some sort of concert involving instruments being played, and some kind of pantsu shot (being tasteful wins bonus points). Sounds like Sore Machi to me!

Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru – 07

「愛のナイトウ避行」 (Ai no Nai Touhikou)
“Loveless Elopement”

So when they say “Slice of Life”, I suppose you can take it as literally cutting a slice out of your life and animating it. What’s cool is that since we are all different people, all of our experiences are different – and what makes slice of life so great is that anyone can take that slice of whatever they’re showing and almost feel like they could be a part of that, even if that person has never experienced it.

Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru – 06

「パンドラマイドサービス」
“Pandora Maid Service”

There are bad jokes, okay jokes, and pretty good jokes. Then there are laugh your ass off and accidentally shoot coke out of your nose jokes.

「実に微妙な辰野トシ子」 (Jitsu ni Bimyona Tatsuno Toshiko)
“The Amazingly Strange Tatsuno Toshiko”

Whoa, did you just get your Kato Emiri in my Sore Machi? Combine that with a change of pace and more Futaba and you get PURE AWESOME.

Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru – 04

「呪いの方程式」 (Noroi no Houtei Shiki)
“Cursed Formula”

Mr. Moriaka, you have such a strange sense of humor. I understand that you really don’t like Hotori. I understand that she is fundamentally the only reason why you can no longer enjoy life. But the point to which you stress over her failing your quizzes and exams is just plain overkill. It’s making your hair fall out for god sake!

Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru – 03

「猫省年」 (Neko Shounen)
“Catboy”

Continuing on from last week, this whole “student & teacher” relationship thing started to feel a little overplayed (except I love hearing Sugita Tomokazu, so I don’t mind). At least, that’s what I thought until a stark (but hilarious) reality check comes tumbling in and destroys all of Hotori’s teacher loving affection. What would you expect a teacher to say if you asked them, “Did you happen to fall for me?” Yeah, I didn’t think of anything positive either. Plus, new character this week!

「セクハラ裁判が大人気」 (Sekuhara Saiban ga Daininki)
“Sexual Harassment Trials are Popular”

Have you ever had one of those days, where everything just seemed to go wrong? Like, no matter what you did, no matter how hard you tried, everything just always took a turn for the worse? This weeks Sore Machi should have been titled “Murphy’s Law”, with all the crap that Arashiyama goes through.

“Fortune Cafe Before & After”

Maid outfits? Maid training? Maid JUTSU? From the amazing people at SHAFT, the company who has brought us some of my favorites such as Mahoromatic and Bakemonogatari, comes Soredemo Machi Wa Mawatteiru. A quirky comedy, filled with gags, jokes, and some really weird character designs.
